You are familiar with the InDesign environment & managed text, tables, graphics & colors in documents. In this course, you will use the advanced features in InDesign to create documents that are attractive and have the highest degree of perfection.

Course Outline

In Adobe® InDesign® CS6: Part 1 you were introduced to the many features that help you create professional looking documents. Now you need to create much lengthier interactive documents that need to be accessed across a range of devices. In this course, you will learn advanced InDesign techniques to enhance the look and functionality of your documents.

Using Adobe InDesign, you can create interactive documents and export them for viewing in a web browser with various features such as buttons, page transitions, movies and audio files, hyperlinks and animation. You have the ability to assign color profiles and establish print presets. In creating longer documents, you'll be able to include such features as a table of contents, footnotes, cross-references and an index.

We have not received any reviews specific to this course as yet, however here are some reviews of the training vendor.

AWESOME! The trainer was so engaged, knowledgeable, and helpful! I would take any training that she facilitates!

Didn't help me at all. Too fast, too many things for one day of training. Any time for practicing. It looks more like presentation which I didn't expect. I wanted to learn something and not just to be impresses by somebody's knowledge and I didn't learned anything. Only thing that I learned is to think twice before to give your many. Sorry for saying that, but I don't recommend it to anyone.

Introduce a two-hour free exercises. I like to explore and them ask questions if needed.

There wasn't a lot of time to ask questions at the end of the seminar such as topics not covered in class.

The class was reduced to one-day because of a lack of participants. However, I think it would have been better to reschedule to class rather than condense into one day. I left the course feeling I could learn much more than what was discussed. Thank you.

Felt that we should have received an actual MS Project book not just a photocopy of excerpts bound into a coil booklet give the price of the course.

Fantastic course with an excellent instructor. Good learning pace but a little more time would be useful. Donna is a very knowledgable instructor and a pleasure to have. I never realized how much work was involved in making animation. Thanks for the great experience and I'm looking forward to training with you again.

The trainer was inexperienced....he admitted that he doesn't work on photoshop CS6...he has more experience on CS3... He kept talking about his personal business rather than the course. i had ask to be trained in CS6 mac not PC. Course files were not available. I only stayed until noon. I had more experience than the trainer.....Bad choice...waste of my time and money....

I prefered having the one-on-one training, because it met all my expectations. I've had many trainings in groups, sometimes you understand most of the course but others are slower. It was excellent for me, if I ever have training in the future it's definitely one-on-one. :)

the facility was a little bit too warm - no air circulation it seemed like.

Very good training. Introduction to course was a little lengthy, I felt that there was a little bit too much emphasis on minor details that we already knew (i.e.printing) and that this time could have been used on more details about Excel. The course was extremely helpful however and the consultant explained things very clearly. The building is old (which I understand is not the tenant's fault) but it smelt of mold which doesn't make for the most comfortable environement.

I enjoyed his sense of humour and his flexibility in meeting our needs within the group.

I liked the fact that you guys do your training in small groups, easier to learn the information and to ask question.

The course and the trainer met all of my expectations. The instructior was very knowledgeable and friendly. Once thing that I would like to suggest is for the provider to ensure that all participants are clearly notified not to wear scented products on the day of the training. Being in a small classroom space, surrounded by overpowering scents was very distracting and made it difficult to breathe.

The instructor easily adapted to special requests that were above and beyond what was listing in the course offering. A couple of us wanted to know more about MS Project 2010 and, when it was not at all inconvenient to the other participants, she walked us through some of the differences. This added a lot of value to the course. Her confidence with the material was contagious.

I love teaching method, it is very affordable.

The only issue was the instructor, although EXTREMELY knowledgeable, didn't follow the Course Material at all. In fact I didn't even do a single exercise on the workstation. Essentially he used the White Board and showed examples (not in course material), and we discussed the nuances of "simple" SQL. Again, the instructor was extremely knowledgeable but there was absolutely no hands on (ie workstation etc)

Thank you for an enjoyable day of learning. Pierre was a great help. He answered our questions, and was very patient when we did not understand. Thank you again for an enjoyable learning experience.

Although the course information was relevant to the specific material - some basic Windows commands should not be necessary to be reiterated to students in class such as 'Cut and Paste' and 'Save File As'. This takes away valuable time to the specific subject course.

The course was great! Enjoyable and everything it said it would be.

I was the only participant so received one on one training. With a group you usually do exercises from a workbook which would have been beneficial to me but that didn't happen with one on one training. I was shown how to do something and then asked to do it too rather than starting an exercise from scratch in a workbook and having to figure it out myself.
